Clean up Quest Program data folder

We used to push out feature updates through KACE and some users have the download still in their program data folder. Please see below, is there a way KACE can clean up this folder?

by default the downloads are kept in the folder. But if you like you can run a script to clean this out (but make sure C:\ProgramData\Quest\KACE keeps there and also the files itself. the dell\ downloads\ logs\ patches\ and scripts\ are repopulated regulary if files are needed, so if the install is valid for the system it may be resynced.
A script like that may be helpful. This was needed for an older misled feature in an older KACE version, where patches were not cleaned out when something went wrong.
You can modify it for your own needs if you like.
Please be aware, if you delete files the agent needs for communication (like the amp.conf or the certificates etc) then you will destroy the functionality, so be aware.
If you click on the little mario block you can find all variables you can use.
